A knife doesn’t always need to be highly specialized in regards to function, which is why our EDC knives range from versatile designs intended to help you throughout your daily routine, to intricate statement pieces that are bound to drum up conversation among fellow enthusiasts. These are our daily drivers, accumulating a lifetime’s worth of stories with every cut.
AXIS Lock: A Benchmade original, The AXIS is a 100% ambidextrous locking mechanism that revolutionized folding knife technology over two decades ago.
Carbon Fiber: A contemporary premium composite that blends woven strands of carbon fiber and resin to create a material that truly showcases ultralight strength.
The EDC community spans a diverse spectrum of personalities and interests. We are proud to work with individuals who we feel embody our favorite aspects of the artistic direction and design within the knife community, each in their own way.
